Gears fans are going to get a chance to test out the Gears 5 multiplayer starting on July 17.
The Multiplayer Technical Test will take place over two weekends starting July 19 through July 21 and again on July 26 through July 29. Fans can pre-download on Windows 10 and Xbox One on July 17.
According to Xbox Wire:
Multiplayer fans of all types can enjoy these weekend test sessions, as you’ll get to play Escalation (our updated competitive gametype) along with Arcade (a new and approachable multiplayer gametype) and a longtime fan favorite: King of the Hill. For players new to Gears or those that want to practice their skills and learn new mechanics we’ve added our new training mode – Bootcamp. The Tech Test also features a short Tour of Duty, which is a series of challenges for players to earn content – completing all of these challenges unlocks an exclusive Tech Test Banner. Players can also unlock three Versus Weapon Skins by completing some additional challenges. For a closer look at Escalation, be sure to check out the ELEAGUE Invitational next weekend (July 13-14) and stay tuned for additional details about Arcade next week.
Fans of roided up chainsaw machine gun badasses rejoice.
